SOILWORK LYRICS

1. Verkligheten


[Instrumental]

Verkligheten, the Swedish word for Reality. The entity we're all escaping from.

Verkligheten is the dark matter surrounding your personal space,
Verkligheten are the neighbouring dimensions that you thought could never affect your reality.

Verkligheten is the monster under your bed, the skeleton in your closet that still is alive after all these years.

Making his bones stripped of sinew, cartilage and muscle to move in synchronicity just to remind you that nothing is what it seems.

Verkligheten is a reminder, a omen, a futile firework shot into the stratosphere to perhaps reflect its outburst on a tiny piece of the earth.


2. Arrival


Right then my blood was the sunrise,
my soul the imminent threat.
Jaded by nightmares and nothing but tragedy,
declarations of utter distress.

I will love you but so will the scapegoat
when there's nothing more left to regret.
What I feel as I wade through the ashes
is so much more now, how could I forget?

I feel alive...
My senses flow on repeat,
The essence burns when I feel!

The sky reflects in my hands,
you took my world 'cause you can.
Is it just me or is the light?
Oh read me, you dust ridden seer
and prepare for the night!

It is never too late,
now released from the cage.
But still stuck in a dream,
bleeding through all the seams.

All my inner redemption
was all captured and carried away.
Needing closure but yet stuck on repeat,
speeding through deserts, burned by the heat.

Time will show if I'm fit for the breakdown,
merging the images with all your words.
Everything's falling but I seem to be floating,
quenching my thirst from the deepest of wells.

I feel alive...
My senses flow on repeat,
The essence burns when I feel!

The sky reflects in my hands,
you took my world 'cause you can.
Is it just me or is the light?
Oh read me, you dust ridden seer
and prepare for the night!

It is never too late,
now released from the cage.
But still stuck in a dream,
bleeding through all the seams.


3. Bleeder Despoiler


Is it you my bleeder despoiler,
all that was and never were?
Hard drugs and heavy religion,
all that was because of her.

Is it you my bleeder despoiler,
all that never came to be?
Hard luck and quick decisions,
all this because of me.

And it's safe,
let your mind just float away
This time we might find a way!
There are words still left to say
for those departed we'll remain.

Is it you my bleeder despoiler,
these words weren't meant to last.
Rough love and premonitions,
all going nowhere fast.

Is it you my bleeder despoiler,
our love's a funeral pyre.
Hard times and quick decisions,
who knows what's left inside.

And it's safe,
let your mind just float away
This time we might find a way!
There are words still left to say
for those departed, let them stay.


4. Full Moon Shoals


I've never been your savior,
I've never been your ghost,
and as I'm pushing further
I'm playing the silent host.

I feel like I am treading water,
smoke's still burning my eyes!

Through and through I'm
still captured by disorder,
swept away by every
helpful advice.

Anyone would cure it with blindness,
there were moments where I thought I could be
a man who's aching for the hour of closure.
Darkness clearly kept on covering my needs!

Kept on covering my needs!
But it's not what it seems,
it's just an inner endless shriek!

I won't unchain the lonely,
I won't release their souls,
but I will examine the wishful
and drown in the full moon shoals.

Anyone would cure it with blindness,
there were moments where I thought I could be
a man who's aching for the hour of closure.
Darkness clearly kept on covering my needs!

Kept on covering my needs!
But it's not what it seems,
it's just an inner endless shriek!

Embracing the culmination as the
flames keep licking the sky.

Slowly rising from the murky waters
I reach for the tenebrous sky,
sons and daughters of the repressed order
take my turn and meet the dragon's eye.

Anyone would cure it with blindness,
there were moments where I thought I could be
a man who's aching for the hour of closure.
Darkness clearly kept on covering my needs!

Kept on covering my needs!
But it's not what it seems,
it's just an inner endless shriek!


5. The Nurturing Glance


Luminous deity, perilous Djinn,
sacrificed unity, servants of sin.
Ominous spiritus, reaper of souls,
living in all of us, seizing control.

What if it's too late to suffer?
What if it's too late to die?

As we rise, seeking shelter from our sins,
we'll escape from the universe within.
In a time when the veil is growing thin,
we'll take flight from the universe within.

Eschaton aftermath, burying trust,
even this psychopath learns to adjust.
What if it's too late to suffer?
What if if s too late to die?

As we rise, seeking shelter from our sins,
we'll escape from the universe within.
In a time when the veil is growing thin,
we'll take flight from the universe within.

We're unwanted pariahs
at the governance doors,
it's the finalization of
what's happened before.

As we rise, seeking shelter from our sins,
we'll escape from the universe within.
In a time when the veil is growing thin,
we'll take flight from the universe within.

Luminous deity, perilous Djinn,
sacrificed unity, servants of sin.
Ominous spiritus, reaper of souls,
living in all of us, seizing control.

As we rise!


6. When The Universe Spoke


Megalithic and ancien,
of unknown origin.
The long dead disciples,
their bones now dust
and scattered in the wind.

These fragments of a soul
like specks of sentient will,
black matter fills the void
of all that can be killed.

Blank-faced enigma,
nurturing stars.
Residual carbon is
all that we are.

At first there is nothing
and then it unfolds.
Evolves into something,
no one can control.

The ones who forgot us
when the dam finally broke
were longing for silence
when the universe spoke.

The eloquence in sadness
of uncompromised loss,
from a temporal riptide
to a cancerous growth as
all the lines are crossed.

Time is the immortal continuum,
Death is this subconscious design.
The relentless scavenger of galaxies
will not cease or devolve.

Blank-faced enigma,
nurturing stars.
Residual carbon is
all that we are.

At first there is nothing
and then it unfolds.
Evolves into something,
no one can control.

The ones who forgot us
when the dam finally broke
were longing for silence
when the universe spoke.

Deflect to the warship,
cease and desist.
The ones that we fought for
are no longer missed.

No!

At first there is nothing
and then it unfolds.
Evolves into something,
no one can control.

The ones who forgot us
when the dam finally broke
were longing for silence
when the universe spoke.


7. Stålfågel


Now did you hear the sound
ascending from the ground?
A prayer from those who stayed
or died along the way.

We trust the trembling air
to take us anywhere,
transcending gravity and
hoping that we'll be set free.

Unbound instantly,
airborne aimlessly.
We drift towards the
darkness of our Heavens.

Unbound instantly,
airborne aimlessly.
We drift apart to
finally fade away.

I'm whispering your name,
a memory set to flame
like all I left behind.
Becoming someone
else this time.

Unbound instantly,
airborne aimlessly.
We drift towards the
darkness of our Heavens.

Unbound instantly,
airborne aimlessly.
We drift apart to
finally fade away.


8. The Wolves Are Back In Town


Was it just a subliminal death threat
when you said that the ending was near?
Was it part of your criminal mindset
to appease the celestial sphere?

Was it Death as an everyday phenomenon
that all is passing like the clouds?
Would you meet me at the gates of Parthenon
to relinquish every doubt?

And if you were on my side
would you leave me to decide?
Will it change this time around
when the wolves are back in town?

Though the times I spent with you
took me further from the truth,
I still hoped you'd be around
when the wolves are back in town.

And so you say
there's an end to the carnage
but no end to the fear,
now your sympathies are clear.

There's a cloud of death around you
and a halo of despair.
And the plague you brought is dying
to infect the midnight air.

There's a cloud of death around you
and a halo of despair.
Though it took so long to find you
you could have me anywhere.

And if you were on my side
would you leave me to decide?
Will it change this time around
when the wolves are back in town?

Though the times I spent with you
took me further from the truth,
I still hoped you'd be around
when the wolves are back in town.

There's a cloud of death around you
and a halo of despair.
And the plague you brought is dying
to infect the midnight air.

There's a cloud of death around you
and a halo of despair.
Though it took so long to find you
you could have me anywhere.

And if you were on my side
would you leave me to decide?
Will it change this time around
when the wolves are back in town?

Though the times I spent with you
took me further from the truth,
I still hoped you'd be around
when the wolves are back in town.


9. Witan


We will follow and our hearts will bleed,
servants of the circle will renounce their greed.
We will follow and our hearts will bleed,
servants of the circle will renounce their greed.

Within the realms of reason,
we've felt the ominous rise.
Taking turns to encircle the scapegoat,
our everlasting vice, everlasting vice.

From the shadow of the restless mind
to the hollow and deserted sky.
We feel the hunger but we're
bound by the night.

We see the sign but
we're still slaves of empty...

Spaces controlling this ride,
changing the pace of time,
watching the stars align.

Unknown faces reside in my mind.
Poisoned but mesmerized,
serving the darker times.

We hear a distant calling,
the current is pulling our souls.
Sudden defeat but constant turmoil,
we've embraced our fatal role.

Relieved but torn from the inside,
received but the wish is dead.
The wish is dead!

From the shadow of
the restless mind
we see the sign but
we're still slaves of empty...

Spaces controlling this ride,
changing the pace of time,
watching the stars align.

Unknown faces reside in my mind.
Poisoned but mesmerized,
serving the darker times.

Darker times!

We fear the dawning of a new day,
the bleakest winds are coming through.
If this is death I will remember
every word I saw in you.

Spaces controlling this ride,
changing the pace of time,
watching the stars align.

Unknown faces reside in my mind.
Poisoned but mesmerized,
serving the darker times.

Darker times!


10. The Ageless Whisper


Soak up the sound of the ageless whisper,
let buried memories form the shadow of doubt.
All those years when your senses would proliferate
you shut the doors but unleashed the hounds.

You spoke the words of reason,
you fired your instincts at will.
You married the rain through the
seasons of everlasting thrills.

Still waiting for a call
as darkness shall befall the
one who never settles within!

Do you remember choosing
death when we were young?
We let the darker moments flourish
and kept our destiny shunned.

Now there is nothing left
from when we used to run,
in the valleys of our dreams
we'd already sold the sun.

Two worlds colliding in a merciless winter,
wearily fires burn inside your soul.
Imaginations thrusting your guidelines
and steals the light beyond control.

You spoke the words of reason,
you fired your instincts at will.
You married the rain through the
seasons of everlasting thrills.

Still waiting for a call
as darkness shall befall.
Darkness shall befall the one
who never settles within!

Settles within!

Do you remember choosing
death when we were young?
We let the darker moments flourish
and kept our destiny shunned.

Now there is nothing left
from when we used to run,
in the valleys of our dreams
we'd already sold the sun.


11. Needles And Kin


[feat. Tomi Joutsen]

Sentinel of the retribution,
summoner of the dying light.
Guardian of the grand delusion,
phosphorus and apatite

She's observed you
from the other world
She has heard you,
every world unfurled.

Soon she is coming,
soon she'll descend.
First we're devolving
then we'll ascend.

And I know it's the only way
out of here that lies ahead,
and I know that she will get us
off this planet of the dead.

Oversight of the ever-watching,
vigilance of the seldom seen.
Sulphurous dawn is soon approaching
promises of what might have been.

Unshed tears cascading from
her interstellar space,
disconnected from the earth
and all that we embraced.

She's observed you
from the other world
She has heard you,
every world unfurled.

Soon she is coming,
soon she'll descend.
First we're devolving
then we'll ascend.

And I know it's the only way
out of here that lies ahead,
and I know that she will get us
off this planet of the dead.


12. You Aquiver


[feat. Dave Sheldon]

Turn around my friend
and watch it all go down
with your heart, with your mind.

Let it sink!

Believing your thoughts soon will migrate
to a place where your soul is a storm.
The insight still make you aquiver!

The ethereal glow of the master
who controls all your imminent thoughts
is consuming your way to salvation, heed.

As fire breaks the dawn!

Pervasive hatred now
intruding your inner reluctance,
wuthering days are extending
your breakdown.

Lash out as the thorns
keep piercing your soul,
Washed out as the crown above
your conscience turns cold.

Greeting somber ages to come!

Speeding through chambers of illusion,
summoning the ghosts of ourselves.
The aurora of our blind faith,
it is me but it's you that I feel.

The shivers are constant but soothing,
the love for the order of sins.
It's faithful but still it
is spreading disease.

Pervasive hatred now
intruding your inner reluctance,
wuthering days are extending
your breakdown.

Lash out as the thorns
keep piercing your soul,
Washed out as the crown above
your conscience turns cold.

Greeting somber ages!

Pervasive hatred now
intruding your inner reluctance,
wuthering days are extending
your breakdown.

Lash out as the thorns
keep piercing your soul,
Washed out as the crown above
your conscience turns cold.

Greeting somber ages to come!

Pervasive hatred now
intruding your inner reluctance,
wuthering days are extending
your breakdown.

Lash out as the thorns
keep piercing your soul,
Washed out as the crown above
your conscience turns cold.

Cold is your state of woe,
greeting somber ages!

Lash out as the thorns
keep piercing your soul,
Washed out as the crown above
your conscience turns cold.

Greeting somber ages to come!
